If you haven't yet purchased that air conditioner, now's the time to do it. This week's sizzling temperatures could actually break records.
The National Weather Service issued a warning for those living in the southwestern United States, specifically southern California, southern Nevada, and southern Arizona, where "record-breaking, dangerous heat" is expected tomorrow through Wednesday. That's June 19 - 22, 2016.
With temperatures potentially getting up to 120 degrees in the deserts, the National Weather Service warns that, "These extreme temperatures can be life-threatening." Putting some perspective on just how hot it could get, AccuWeather meteorologist Ryan Adamson made this statement:
"The highest temperature on record in the United States during the month of June is 129 in Death Valley, California, on June 30, 2013. That record could be in jeopardy this weekend and early next week."
